Don't forget that you can control the horizontal width of each character; in
my experience a small change here (up to + or - 10%) will not make the text
ugly or less readable, but can make a big difference to how the text fits
on a page, without changing the font size. In the Story Editor, select all
the text you want to adjust and then change the number in the 'Scaling
Width' box.
